Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Cell response to sub-microsecond pulsed electric fields (sm-PEF) is examined using an equivalent circuit model (ECM) where a network of electrical components is used to represent the cell environment and the cell with its internal structures. The model is evaluated by comparing results with published data from other numerical studies. It is shown that the model, which is not computationally demanding, may be usefully adopted to examine cell and organelle response in vitro, and where the applied pulse shape and frequency spectrum may be of significance.
